Miller Clashes With NYT Reporter Over Immigration Plan, VIDEO
From Free Beacon
White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller clashed with New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush over cutting legal immigration levels at the White House press briefing on Wednesday.
Miller appeared in the press briefing room to publicly advocate, on behalf of President Donald Trump, for the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act. This legislation, introduced by Sens. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and David Perdue (R., Ga.), expects to cut legal immigration by half in order to raise wages and create jobs for American workers.
Thrush asked Miller to provide statistics, claiming that there are several studies that do not show a "correlation between low-skilled immigration and the loss of jobs for workers." He went on to say that sources told him a month earlier that the Trump administration pushed infrastructure aside to get immigration on the table.
